[quote=Snarf999]After giving the game a break for a couple of days (I didn't miss it) I thought I'd come back and try again.

My current thoughts (not shared by everyone I know, there are people who will like the game no matter what!).

I fly a Tactical Escort and was going against a Klingon ship and was hammering it for at least a minute, I managed to get it's hull down to 90% (it was back at full shields nearly) when I died. I understand about Science Team, Rotate Shields etc but thought what's supposed to be the Federation's major damage dealer might have more of an effect.
This happens to the Klingons as well. Ya just switch targets and come back.

He didnt cloak he used Mask energy signal. Both sides can use it so you can have it to.

Perhaps having Fed and Klingon only channels might help, or being able to see where all your allies are on a map.

Also, I hope there are plans to introduce balancing on PvP maps? I started a map today, with me being the only one in then, followed by 3 Klingon ships coming in about 2 mins later and the map ended up being 3v5 I think - once sides are balanced, then perhaps start balancing levels?
These have been popular requests, Im not sure why they wont implement it.
